Awesome Con is this weekend already – April 18-20, 2014! our business cards have been ordered, our prints are ready to rock, and we’re wrapping up some projects before heading to the show on Friday! since this show is in our hometown of Washington, DC, it’s gonna be a huge blast. and who knows, maybe one of our studiomates may have a new addition to the family before the weekend is out. 😉 everyone say CONGRATULATIONS to Flash – Mr. About-to-have-4-kids!
if you’re in the area, come on by Tables 439/538 and say SUP! to Peng-Peng, theFranchize, and Flash! we’ll have prints, books, and original art to sell. we’ll have “Adventure Time” and “Samurai Jack” books that we’ve worked on, “Loki:Ragnarok and Roll” books, and even “Fanboys Vs Zombies” trades at the table. we’ve all done different badge designs for this show as well so we’re very excited to see everyone walking around with our art around their necks. Peng-Peng will also have an Awesome Con Exclusive Cover for My Little Pony:Friends Forever #1 so make sure u get a copy and have her sign it! see you all there!
about a month before Peng-Peng‘s exclusive cover for Aspen Comics’ “Soulfire” came out, Jerry “theFranchize” Gaylord also did an exclusive cover for a new Aspen title “Trish Out of Water” #1. both of these exclusive covers are for the WV Pop Culture Con. only 500 of these exclusive covers were printed so if you see us at a con near you, be sure to snag yourself a copy. theFranchize is selling the issue with his cover for $10. if you can’t wait for a con, you can contact him directly at jerry @ identitycomics.com.
look what rolled onto the comic book scene yesterday! Aspen Comics has just released an all new “Soulfire” #1 comic and ID STUDIOS’ own Penelope “Peng-Peng” Gaylord drew & colored an exclusive cover for WV Pop Culture Con. only 500 copies of these were made. we will be bringing copies of these books to sell at shows for $10 each. if you would like to snag a copy, you can get one from Peng-Peng directly by emailing her at penelope @ identitycomics.com. or you can just wait till you see us again at a comic con near you in 2014!
even though we are enjoying some time at home from comic cons, we here at ID STUDIOS can’t wait for Southern Maryland Comic Con on November 9th. why?? because BRYAN “FLASH” TURNER’s exclusive cover for Samurai Jack #1 will be making its debut! and it is AWESOME!!! and what’s even better is that the back of it is blank. so make sure you attend the convention, get your copy of the exclusive cover, and have Flash draw you a sketch!
Jim Zub, the writer for the new series, is also a guest at the show so make sure you get his signature on it as well. gotta love all the ID STUDIOS art spread around on these different covers. ~peng
all of us at ID Studios are gearing up for the biggest comic con that any of us have ever been to. you may have heard of it, it’s called SAN DIEGO COMIC CON! all 4 members will actually be there, but we won’t have a table at artist alley or anything. some are going for their first time, some are going to work, but all are going cuz SDCC is awesome!
couple of announcements as we ready up for the show.
what with the BOOM/Archaia merge done before SDCC, they’ve just announced that both companies will have 1 booth on the con floor – BOOTH 2229. which means the booth will be brimming with some of the best titles outside of “the big 2.” both theFranchize AND Peng-Peng will once again be drawing on sketch covers the entire show at the BOOM booth. theFranchize will be drawing zombie-fied versions of fans of Fanboys Vs. Zombies while Peng-Peng will be on the all-ages side drawing Adventure Time sketch covers with other artists. be sure to get on the lists early because if it’s anything like what it was last year, the lines will be BA-NAY-NAYS!
also at SDCC, Bryan “Flash” Turner will sitting at the BOOM! booth to do signings of his awesome Adventure Time/Candy Capers SDCC-Exclusive covers! when he’s not signing, he’ll be running around the con so you snag your signatures on Adventure Time and FVZ books while he’s there! Signing schedule –
Friday 7/19 from 5:30p – 6:30p
Saturday 7/20 from 1:30p – 2:30p
Sunday 7/21 from 2p – 3p
since the ID Studios members will not be sitting in Artist Alley and are doing sketch covers for BOOM all weekend, they won’t be able to take commissions at the show. BUTtheFranchize, Flash, and Peng-Pengare all opening up their pre-con commission lists so that you can pick up your personal commissions from them while they’re at the booth. head on over to their respective blogs for more info or tweet to each of them.
PHEW! i think that’s finally all folks! we’re all so excited for San Diego and we’re trying to meet some deadlines before we leave. if anyone is heading out the con, i hope we see some of you at the BOOM booth or just around the con floor. ~peng
well now that the cat’s out of the bag, we can post about it! ID Studios’ very own Bryan “Flash” Turner has done not one but two San Diego Comic Con exclusive covers for KaBOOM! he did a cover for Candy Capers #1 (brand new series from the studio) and one for Adventure Time #18 which, when butted together, creates one awesome image! check it out for yourself then head on over to Comics Alliance http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/06/18/boom-studios-sdcc-2013-exclusives/ for a look at other SDCC Exclusives coming from Boom!
